Financing & Insurance
INSURANCE: Our office for general dentistry in Charleston, WV is dedicated to help you out in maximizing your insurance benefits. Since insurance policies will vary, we can’t guarantee coverage because of insurance contract complexities, but we can estimate your coverage in good faith. The estimated portion will be paid at the time of the service. We are also a preferred provider for Delta Dental Premier.
It is the patient's responsibility for the payment of the account. As a service to our patients, we will bill your insurance company for the services rendered.
